Movie Info

Margot (Isabelle Adjani) is one of several in line to inherit the crown in France, where Roman Catholics and Protestants are jockeying for power. Margot's mother, Catherine de Medici (Virna Lisi), is intent on seeing her son take the throne once the reign of King Charles IX (Jean-Hugues Anglade) ends. After being married to a man she doesn't love and starting a tryst with one she does, Margot contends with her mother's at-all-costs plan to control the political fate of the volatile country.

Audience Reviews for Queen Margot (La Reine Margot)

  • Apr 25, 2009
    Well produced historical semi-fictionalization about Margaret of Valois. To make the film marketable, there is more emphasis on Margot's romance with La Môle than on the contextual political intrigue which should have been the focal point of the story. Redemptively <I>La Reine Margotit</I> prominently showcases the gorgeous, Isabelle Adjani.in her sensational prime. The setting of Adjani, against a backdrop of artful cinematography makes a treat for the eyes.

    Historical drama of epic proportions, sumptuous yet gritty, held together by fine performances from Isabelle Adjani, maidenly, distant, yet passionate and Virna Lisi as the villainous Catherine de Medici. Labyrinthine yet compellingly flamboyant.

    This film should be considered a classic, but instead, I'm afraid, it's considered completely underwatched, underappreciated, and underrated, and it's deserving of so much more!

    very good, actually... Has a nice political intrigue, and though it gets a bit slow, it has wonderful acting and a nice written script. Visually beautiful. And Adjani fits the character perfectly.
